"Cheryl Ann Hopkins April 14, 1948 - November 18, 2023 Everyone that knew Cheryl commented that she always had a big smile. Cheryl had a very positive outlook on life.

She was born in Dallas, TX in 1948 to Kenneth and Ellaneita Keenum. Cheryl attended R. L. Turner High School before studying at Texas Women's University where she received a bachelor's degree.

Would sacrifice nearly anything for family. She loved her Texas Longhorns. Jerry and Cheryl were season football ticket holders for 20 years. Jerry and Cheryl spent countless hours watching all Longhorn sports on the Longhorn Network. Gameday in Austin, TX was an important and fun experience for Cheryl. Working in the yard with flowers was something she always enjoyed. Cheryl was active in the booster club at Corsicana High School for many years. Some of her best times were spent with the Fairy Football Moms making locker decorations. Cheryl was strong willed. When she was diagnosed with cancer, she said, "I am going to beat this!" And she did. Her determination gave her four more years with her family. In the end, it was dementia that snuck up on her. We will miss her every day. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her. The family of Cheryl would like to thank Dr. Kent Rogers, Dr. Matthews and Dr. Nair of Texas Oncology, Bristol Hospice, Country Meadows Nursing Home and especially Heather Hopkins.
